These pictures are from Brian and Emma’s wedding on the banks of Loch Lomond this summer.
This isn’t a problem.
For a wedding in England recently in the garden of a country estate, we split the ceremony in two. Halfway through, the couple disappeared with witnesses into a glass house to sign the paperwork then we carried on.
The other option is for the couple and witnesses to visit to the Registrar’s office the day before and sign the paperwork. Guests then attend the Big Day the next day – for all intents and purposes, this is The Wedding Day… identifiable by the cars, fizz, ceremony, cake cutting, speeches, food, toasts, dancing and general merriment.
